From papers to productivity in seconds

Organized PDFs

Organizing your PDFs doesn’t have to be a chore. Let Mendeley do it for you. Identify recently added papers, add favorites in a click and store them in multiple folders.

Easily sorted

When you add PDFs, we instantly scan them to identify the author, title, journal and other information by matching the PDF's contents with our global research library. It's like magic.

Intuitive navigation

No more complicated file names. Navigate your research library through relevant fields like Author, Title, Publisher and Journal.

Add papers from anywhere

Import from websites

The web importer allows you to import papers, web pages and other documents into your library from search engines and academic databases.

Import from existing software

Mendeley can import BibTeX, RIS and EndNote™ XML files so you can easily transfer your library from EndNote™, Papers and Zotero.

Drag and drop

Drag any PDF directly into Mendeley from your desktop or folders which you can then instantly annotate, cite, and highlight.

Automatically watch folders

Choose a folder on your computer to “watch”. When you next add papers to that folder, they are also automatically added to your Mendeley library.
